在最近的一次采访中, 丹奇透露，一位电影导演曾经告诉她，她永远不会拍电影，因为她已经 “the wrong face.”
“He was perfectly nice
, but at the end he said
, ‘You’ll never make a film
. You have the wrong face
,'” 女演员, 87, 告诉 the Sunday Times Magazine
. “And I said that is fine
, I don’t like film anyway
. I want to go back to the theatre.
Dench explained that at the time she was trying to expand her work on the big screen since she was only known for her theatre work.
Despite the harsh criticism and doubts, Dench became one of the biggest stars in film when she landed her first lead role in 1997 as Queen Victoria in “Mrs Brown.”
自那时候起, the actress has earned seven Academy Award nominations and one Oscar win for her extraordinary 8-minute performance as Queen Elizabeth I in the 1998 电影 “Shakespeare in Love.”
Her most recent nomination came last year for best supporting actress her role in best picture nominee “Belfast.”
